    securitykiss vpn


    I was watching some tutorials and this seems to be simple and better than no vpn at all.
    Would you use it?

    A VPN is useful if you don't want to be tracked on the internet. There are a lot of providers, but I would recommend sticking with a well-known brand.

    If you are looking for recommendations, NordVPN is high spoken of and seen as a great buy.

    <<I noticed the price is reasonable too. I read an article that said the vpn's will be gone by 2020 as technology is causing them to be less functional. I cannot recall the source but you may look into it..

    I don't see why they would become less functional then they already are.

    That was a poor choice of words. I think the article was saying, with technology moving along as it is, that VPN's are fading out and by 2020 will be gone..
    I am only an average level user so cannot explain why; I can only paraphrase the article. I always check the author of anything Iread and the source likely was reliable. I read PC mag and others like it.

    Would you recommend using one?

    Lot of info on the net about VPNs. Similar to AV protection, user needs to evaluate and make best personal choice.

    Excerpt from an article that gives credence to the above statement.

    It is also important to consider potential security risks of DNS leaks. While all VPN services route traffic through their servers, if the DNS lookups for the websites you visit are still routed through your ISP, it is possible for your ISP to determine what websites you are browsing, defeating the purpose entirely.

    VPN services are free to make claims in their advertising of "no logging," but the reality is usually quite different. VPN providers with bandwidth caps necessarily must log used bandwidth to enforce the caps. Many VPN providers that claim they don't log user activity still retain login information (IP address, user agent, etc.) for their customer portal.

    In addition, the absence of logging does not preclude a service provider from monitoring network activity in real time. Some level of monitoring is ultimately necessary for engineers to identify server loads so they can determine excessive strain on the network and plan for expansion. Ultimately, whether a provider actually logs user activity is not auditable by end users, making it a question of trustworthiness. If you're particularly security conscious, it may be advisable to ensure that your provider is located in a region outside intelligence cooperatives, such as Five Eyes (or the expanded Fourteen Eyes), so that they can't be compelled to turn over user activity to investigative authorities.
